In our daily life, we can't help but see some women suffering from dysmenorrhea periodically around us. According to the gynaecologist of Oxford University, 3 / 4 of dysmenorrhea women affect their normal work. In fact, experts said, if diet and drugs are used to treat dysmenorrhea, dysmenorrhea will no longer be so painful.
Dysmenorrhea refers to spasmodic pain in the lower abdomen before or during menstruation, sometimes accompanied by headache, nausea, palpitation, diarrhea and other symptoms, which can be divided into primary and secondary. The primary physiological pain will be the most serious on the first day of the menstrual cycle. When it is serious, it will even make the patient sit and stand uneasily, unable to work normally, but the intensity of the pain will slow down slowly, and disappear in about two or three days.
The main principle to deal with this kind of primary physiological pain is to treat the symptoms. The most commonly used treatment is to relieve the pain with painkillers. Generally, the effect is good. Except for a few women who have allergic reactions to some painkillers, there are few other serious side effects. In addition, physiological pain can only occur within a few days before and after the menstrual cycle, so the amount of painkillers needed is not much, and the chance of drug resistance is very little, which will not affect the health of patients.
The principle of painkillers used to treat menstrual pain is not the same as that used to treat headache and toothache. Women should go to a gynecologist for diagnosis and prescription. To minimize the pain of menstrual pain, there are also tips for taking painkillers. Because it usually takes an hour or two for the effect to play, it's better to take them immediately when you feel the pain, and the effect will be better.
In addition to seeking doctor's diagnosis and treatment, menstrual pain is also very important for daily self-regulation, such as the regularity of daily life, moderate exercise, balanced nutrition, adequate sleep and pleasant mood. Menstrual pain can also be improved from the aspects of diet and nutrition. If the main causes of menstrual pain are waist and foot pain, abdominal pain, breast distention and pain, you should eat foods rich in vitamins on weekdays; if you have pain in the lower abdomen, uterus and ovary, you should eat foods rich in vitamin C and E, such as yellow and green vegetables, Liuding, lemon, walnut, almond, wheat germ, etc.
As for those who have pain in the whole abdomen during menstruation, they should pay special attention to diet and nutrition on weekdays, eat less raw, cold and greasy food, and can regulate the gastrointestinal tract and stomach with vitamin B group and yoghurt. People who suffer from menstrual pain due to anemia often have headache or tinnitus and abdominal pain when they have menstruation. They may as well supplement iron, dark green vegetables or drink some brandy occasionally. The situation of menstrual pain can be gradually improved.
